The location is unbeatable, with fantastic views that you never tire of. The house is really well designed and set up, a real house that easily accommodated the five of us, including a two year old. The owners are very friendly, helpful and responsive. Roundstone is the ideal base for exploring west Connemara, with pubs and restaurants a couple of minutes walk from the house. This is THE place to stay if you want a house by the sea in Connemara.

The cottage was a beautifully renovated and decorated Irish cottage, full of old country charm, but with all the amenities one would want (TV, fireplace, internet, washing machine etc). The cottage was impeccably clean when we arrived and we were not disappointed with our choice at all! The large open kitchen with surrounding windows that opened up onto the Connemara bogs and mountains in the distance offered spectacular views (as did the sheep that were dotting the landscape everywhere). Our bed was firm and comfortable (no saggy mattresses here thank goodness!) with crisp linens and offered us great sleeps with the country air! And once we figured out how to turn off the lights (we had a good laugh at ourselves trying to find out how to turn off the lights the first night as switches down on the baseboards are unfamiliar to North Americans), our cottage stay was perfect in every respect! Cuach Cottage is definitely on our list for any return visit to the west coast of Ireland!
